I'm absolutely pro freedom of speech and happy to see Voat growing...
but can we just get a single exodus of people who aren't completely obsessed with a particular political issue or simply fucked up in the head? Don't get me wrong I love that voat has a place for everyone.. but when I log in, I don't always want to spend an hour just looking at constant reminders of how good this place is and how people here are more aware of certain topics compared to the rest of the world. Sometimes you also want to enjoy some actual interesting content u.u
And when you browse specific subs, you often discover they either died right after the initial enthusiasm, or just feel a bit too empty and depressing compared to the counterparts on the Other Place.

If it feels empty, provide content. If you believe in that sub, help it grow.

It'll take some time but it's getting there. I've been active here for about a month now and I see this place getting better and better every day.

The outcasts are always the first to leave. Give it time.

Voat really, really needs a better small-sub discovery method. The only time I go over to that awful place is to read up (never post) on some niche subs I'm interested in. I've tried to get the ball rolling on some subs over on this site, it's like pulling teeth to get anyone to post or even subscribe. I feel like I'm yelling into an empty room.

Eventually this place could do something like a small sub of the week feature or something, sticky it on the front fage or something... That could maybe work...?

Oh cool, someone else from the South.

Also, I love how Reddit is self-immolating.

Easiest way to start an arguement between two people from the south? Ask them how they take their grits.

Confirmed partially true: I only picked up my y'alls after spending two months in Texas. But the rest of my northern family still laughs at me for it.

Hey all, I'm Greedeater from Reddit. Yes I know I have a different username here, change is as good as a holiday yeh?

The two things I strive for in Mod duties is Transparency and Consistency. Basically, Rektit (Eddit? Pinnit? SSDS) shat the bed and has fucked with my baby. Between Goreox and I we moulded WPD to what it is today, and the literal second it inevitably gets quarantined as well - by jesus imma flip my shit. Got some good stuff lined as up as a final 'Fuck you' to the Admins too, shall link it when I drop it :)

Oh and I'm Aussie, not from the South. Sorry, y'all is just one of those cross cultural things I picked up from a Seppo mate of mine.

Whenever I look at Reddit's FP, there tends to be more posts from places like r/Aww....and sure, the post is cute, but it's not really interesting. So more frequently, Reddit's FP just gets more boring.

It genuinely is more boring now, but that seems to be exactly what they want.

What is even the point? I don't think I've looked at the default front page more than once since I made my account.

Some people still go on both sites. I like to go on a couple of Reddit's niche groups because they just have more activity/people there.

So Voat will be growing. Because the other place is getting censored safer day after day.

I'm a mod at /v/watchpeopledie and feel almost the same way as Greed. I don't want to waste my time here if it's going to get quarantined (that will eventually turn into a ban).

I think spez will realize how ridiculous the whole quarantine thing make reddit look and do away with it entirely. All the quarantined subs will get banned. The criteria for what gets banned and what gets quarantined seems arbitrary anyway -- they might as well be flipping a coin right now.
